Forum: etree Subject: Re: Any suggestions for artist that have a similar sound to Martin Sexton?

I think Martin is in a category all by himself. I don't think there is a single artist out there who can stand in front of thousands of people with a guitar and mic and put on the kind of show he does. There are plenty of people who are better guitar players, but don't have the voice, and vice versa.

Similarly ambitious, visceral performers: Jeff Buckley has the same kind of dramatic flair as Martin (you won't find him here); Ray Lamontagne (you won't find him here either); Keller Williams (12 string guitar virtuoso); maybe Leo Kottke (classic 12 stringer); Micheal Hedges; even Ani Difranco.

Good luck. Martin still rules. Though I wish he would write some new songs.

Good luck. You'll be hard pressed
